Frequently Asked Questions

What if I have Noise Issues After Installation?

Solution Check List

Be sure that all caliper components are clean prior to disc pad installation. Wire brush if necessary.

Insure that rotor surfaces are smooth and that there is no lip at the outer rotor surface from previous pads. Machine or replace rotors as appropriate as these conditions will cause noise issues.

Clean rotor surfaces (incl. new rotors) with a “Scotch Brite” pad and a brake cleaner such as “Brake-Kleen” available at auto parts stores. Wipe dry with a clean cloth. Do not touch the rotor surface with fingers once clean.

Apply a liberal coating of “Noise Free” or “CRC Disc Brake Quite” to the steel side of the disc brake pad backing plates and to the caliper piston face.


Allow the coating to cure to a tacky condition for minimum of 1 hour prior to assembly. A longer cure (up to 12 hours) is best for the disc brake pad steel surfaces.

Apply a coating of Sta-Lube Synthetic Brake Caliper Grease to the disc brake pad ears that contact and slide in and out within the caliper. Apply also to the other caliper locations as noted on the Sta-Lube directions. Do not apply to the surfaces where “Noise Free” has been applied.

Install Cool Carbon Performance Brake Pads and re-assemble.

Perform bedding procedure as per the included instructions and as specified by Cool Carbon Performance. Very Important!

Note: Pads will generally dust more during the first several hundred miles until fully bedded and stabilized. If any noise is noted, it is likely caused by a build up of dust or the release of tiny friction particles. This is generally resolved by flushing the caliper thru the wheel with a garden hose until the water runs clean. It may be necessary to repeat the flush at a later time.
